I've have a new Xubuntu 14.04 installation and installed Jitsi
2.4.4997 a few days ago. Until today, it was working fine. Today, I
tried to start the program and it completely froze my session to where
I had to actually restart the computer. This happened multiple times
so I uninstalled Jitsi and reinstalled it (using apt-get purge jitsi)
and I'm still experiencing the same problem.
Next, I went to the log file thinking that might lend a clue. No dice!
Apparently, when the crash happens, Jitsi doesn't have the ability to
write to the log file so it's completely empty. Since it's empty, I'm
assuming the software isn't even able to initialize any part of itself
or else I'd at least see some stuff being loaded.
Then, I decided to check out the system logs. I searched all of the
logs for any mention of Jitsi I can find and the only thing I find is
my installation, purge, and re-installation of it. Nothing else shows
at all in /any/ of the log files. No crashes, no-responses, etc.
So, I'm at a loss. Is anyone else having this problem? Does anyone
have a guess as to what might be causing this to suddenly manifest? I
know I can update to a nightly (and I probably will if I can't solve
this problem any other way) but this simply shouldn't have suddenly
popped up and I'd like to figure out why it has.
